Understanding Zygomatic Dental Implants

Unlike conventional dental implants, which are secured in the jawbone, zygomatic dental implants are surgically placed in the zygomatic (cheek) bones. Supported by a strong, stable facial bone, these dental implants do not require alterations of the jawbone, such as bone grafting, to support a bridge of fixed teeth. Zygomatic implants are one of the most complex surgeries in implant dentistry and only few oral surgeons are trained in this procedure. Yet, our oral surgeons place zygomatic dental implants in Phoenix, AZ. on a routine basis and have years of experience and clinical results to back their treatments. By providing zygomatic implants, our oral surgeons can offer you the following benefits:

  • Fewer surgeries required
  • A secure, life-like bridge of teeth
  • Reliable, long-term function
  • Immediate teeth, in most cases

What Can I Expect from the procedure?

Zygomatic dental implants may sound more invasive than conventional treatments, but they can be placed in one surgical procedure without any additional bone grafting while under general anesthesia. Our oral surgeons will use 3D cone beam CT scans to digitally plan your treatment before you arrive. During your procedure, your implants will be placed in strategic positions in the zygomatic bone to assure maximum stability. This procedure may also involve placing conventional dental implants where the jawbone is the densest. Since bone grafting isn’t necessary for this treatment, we can often complete your treatment process faster and provide you with a functional, beautiful new smile quicker than the conventional dental implant surgery. With zygomatic dental implants from our oral surgeons at Smile Now, you can experience a better quality of life permanently!
